'If It's Football, It's Vital'

James reaffirms England ambitions

David James has reaffirmed his hopes of being a part of the starting England side that will hopefully take part in the world cup in 2010, which takes place in South Africa.

Now back as the England no.1 James, even though he is 38 and will be closer to 40 at the time, will not retire until he has fulfilled all his dreams - with one of the main ones being to be the nations keeper in the tournament that is the pinnacle of most footballing careers, telling the Daily Star Sunday: 'I hope my journey isn`t finished yet.

'There are a lot of people who finish their career far too early. I don`t intend to finish until I have fulfilled all my dreams.

'Many say that I should have left the field a long time ago, but I always knew I could do a job.

'And if it means doing a job for England then I am so, so happy.

'This is one of the best squads I`ve been involved in, and I feel that I could go on all the way. We are so good together.

'Everything seems to be going right at the moment.'

We have heard the stories before that James was meant to have been in retirement now, or at least close to it and winding down his career with Plymouth, but his appetite has grown since moving to Pompey - with this move rejuvenating his career and reopening doors that appeared closed, not to mention seeing him win the FA cup and play in Europe again.

I cannot think that any Pompey fans will be in a hurry to see him call it a day, so the longer he wants to carry on playing the better!

Play up Jamo! A role model to many people.

sneakay, I came on to say jamo is a role model pro. I've had the honour of meeting him on a few occasions, and can honestly say what a gent he is, and seems to be one of the few footballers to understand what a priviledged position he is in.

The best keeper in the country, amongst the best in the world on his day. We will have to search hard to replace him when he calls it a day. Jammo is a legend, the best ever.

He's such a superstar, I thought he had a really good game for England against Kazakstahn, even if many of the journo's can't bring themselves to admit it. We are so lucky that his rejuvanated career has happened here at Pompey. It would be great if he won the World Cup before he retired from international football - he deserves it. I've never met him though - probably wouldn't be able to speak if I did!

Top guy, top goalkeeper & ours at Pompey. Long may all that continue.
